What I mean by that is Helena Bonham Carter always shows up to the opening of WHATEVER looking like a Cyndi Lauper circa 1984 who dropped the wrong kind of acid and ended up in the bad part of Oz where a gang of junked up flying monkeys fucked her up before throwing her into a tornado of rainbow dust heading back home. I mean, HBC usually resembles a mound of taffeta getting butt fucked by a period dress from the Old Globe’s costume shop. But yet, she showed up to the BAFTAs in London tonight wearing an ensemble from JcPenney’s funeral matron collection. Totally normal!
Pretty sure my abuelita wore the exact same dress to every single funeral she ever went to. But my abuelita was stylish enough to pair it with beige Easy Spirits, a brown veil and a huge purse lined with paper towels (aka “her buffet visitin’ purse“). Maybe Helena Bonham Carter held back, because she’s saving up her energy for the Oscars in a couple of weeks. That’s when she’s really going to throw the fuckery down the carpet and put all those bland bitches to bed. Let’s hope that’s what’s brewing up in her head, because I cannot accept this kind of behavior from her anymore!
So yeah, the BAFTAs were tonight and below is some of the winner’s list:
